    "Missing features" with dual monitors on ATI 2600?

    I got myself a shiny new dual-DVI ATI 2600, and a 2nd monitor. It all works well except that it doesn't allow me to do some pretty obvious things:

    1)I can't make my start-bar span both monitors
    2)I can't tell a program "run on monitor 2" - i have to drag it there

    I used to be able to do both of these about 5 years ago on nVidia cards...
    Also, I thought it was normal these days to make Windows see both monitors as one 2560x1024 area, rather than two 1280x1024 ones?

    Have you installed the latest drivers and ATI Catalyst control panel?

    I remember ATi had a hydravision application that you could right-click windows and 'send to monitor 2'... not sure if that exists anymore.

    For the extra large screen, you need to select "Extend My Desktop" not 'clone'.
